The only fully Australian ground-up microbiology text with a focus on infection control for nursing and allied health students.

This resource aims to provide a comprehensive guide to microbiology, infectious diseases and infection control. It is suitable for students, clinicians and educators in the health professions.

Microbiology is rapidly changing due to new research, the discovery of new diseases and pathogens, and changes in clinical practice. This edition presents a comprehensive update in new diagnostic techniques and improved guidelines for antibiotic use and infection control.

Where appropriate, the emphasis is placed on Australian data, the incidence of diseases in Australia, and Australian guidelines for infection control practices.
